We're about to part with some pretty sweet digs here on 20th and Colorado to move into digs of our own. Until today, Xoova has been subleasing a beautiful corner, replete with top-of-the-line Herman Miller chairs and views of waving bamboo, from the friendly folks at Business.com. Their energy has been terrific for us (along with basking in their climate of success -- they sold to RH Donnelly for $345 million in July).
So why are we moving? Well, we had to. Business.com is growing, they need the space back, and we've been summarily kicked to the curb (not really. They've been ever so gracious).
I believe that being forced to do a less than ideal move that we hadn't planned will undoubtedly make us better. Look at what happened when we lost our domain name doctorsdirect.com. We became Xoova, changed our business model for the better, updated the site to be far more accessible and useful, and kickstarted our whole company.
When we move into 1317 5th Street, 3rd Floor, we'll have a slightly less fabulous view, I won't be chair rolling distance from my buddy Chris, and we'll have to buy our own organic coffee. But we'll also have our own rooftop access, a shark tank, and can look out our windows straight across the alley to the Google corporate office. That Google flag waving will be our new climate of success to bask in.
